The Royal Highland Show will welcome back members to this year’s event, with Friday looking to be the busiest day. This is according to data captured from the RHASS online reservation system for members, which went live earlier in May.
So far the system has been called easy to use, simple and efficient. The 11,500 members who provided an email address were sent a unique code to enable them to secure tickets. Of these, 7,330 have responded already with the most popular days being Thursday and Friday.
The RHASS has asked members to flag which days they will be attending to get an accurate representation of attendance each day, which will free up tickets for visitors and manage resources.
Additionally, there has been an influx of new members in anticipation of the show, with over 500 signing up in the last month alone.
Commenting on the numbers, Alan Laidlaw RHASS chief executive said: “As we know many of our members are unable to attend the 4 days of the show for a variety of reasons, which has now been demonstrated and recorded through the new software.
“Having this information frees up allocation for paying guests which will generate funds for the charity to enable us to carry out more charitable activities. I would like to thank our members for their support which is greatly appreciated.”
